The Veterans Memorial building in San Leandro was constructed in 1934 by the county of Alameda with the aide of funding from the Public Works Administration (PWA). The building dedication was held on September 23, 1934.
The site was purchased by the city of San Leandro in 1933 for $65,000 and the building cost $80,000.
It was designed by Henry Meyer, Mildred Meyer and George Klinkhardt and the contractor was George Peterson.
A new wing was added on the south side of the building, with a cornerstone that says “1950” — which is confusing since there is no other cornerstone or plaque giving the date of the original, 1934.
The building was remodeled in 1996 by Zachary Nathan, architect of San Francisco.
